Dorothy M. “Dart” High, 81, of Lancaster, left peacefully into the waiting arms of Jesus with her family by her side on Monday, November 9, 2020. She had a valiant journey with bladder cancer for 15 years.
She was married 62 years to Donald L. High. Born in Marticville, she was the daughter of the late William G. and Mabel Witmer Mellinger.
Dorothy was a graduate of Manheim Township High School and in addition to raising her four children she worked at the Lancaster Central Market for 10 years for Widder’s Produce now Mecks. She was an active Charter Member of the Neffsville Mennonite Church and was involved in the Ambassador’s For Christ Sunday School Class. In earlier years she had been involved with a chapter of the Farm Women and a circle of friends group. She and her husband spent many wonderful winters at their home in Sarasota where they golfed and played games with their Lancaster friends. She was thoroughly immersed in the lives of her grandchildren and cherished every minute she spent with them. She was recently involved with a Black Rook group and also met with a group of friends at S. Clyde Weavers every Friday morning.
Surviving besides her husband is a daughter, Lisa H. wife of Don G. Clark, Jr. of Ronks; two sons, Marc D. High of Lancaster, and Joel E. High of Myrtle Beach, SC; seven grandchildren, Katelyn Mellinger, wife of Andy, Donald Clark III, husband of Amy, Brooke High, Owen High, Travis High, Alex High and Sarah High; and a brother, Bill husband of Elizabeth Mellinger of East Petersburg. She was preceded in death by a son, Michael E. High and by a sister, Anna Diller of Easton, PA
Dart reached out to many who came into her life, she was a very giving person and would send many notes of encouragement to those who needed it and was also a prayer warrior.
Services and interment in the Mellinger Mennonite Cemetery will be private and held at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers, to honor her, consider donating to the charity of your choice and or consider doing a random act of kindness to someone you do not know, which was her nature.

I wish to express my sincerest condolences to the friends and family of Mrs. High.
God cares about your grief and tears. One Bible writer said to God: "Do collect my tears in your skin bottle. Are they not recorded in your book?" - Psalm 56:8
Remember, while the void you feel in your heart may not disappear, with God's tender help, you can cherish you memories of Dart and you can still enjoy warm friendships and a purposeful life. And soon God will eliminate death. He wants you to be able to embrace your loved one again. Then that pain in your heart will be healed forever. The scriptures provided me and my family comfort by helping us see Gods loving plan for those who enter rest. For comfort from the Bible please visit

Don, Lisa, Don, Marc, and Joel, Joanne and I were saddened to hear of Dart's passing. We have many fond memories of her at family gatherings and at church. My memories go back to when I was about twelve years when Dart, assisted with my sister, Janet, pranked me with a facetious phone call.

Don and Lisa and family,
Nelson and I are sorry to hear of your loss of your sweet wife Dart and wonderful mother and grandmother. We always enjoyed her sweet spirit and her encouragement. We remember the cards she sent us over the years; thanking Nelson for his ushering, and when we lost our parents or celebrated an anniversary. We send our love and prayers. Nelson and Barb Dagen
